  1. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    So I just bought a 97 Z3 1.9l that has 80k miles and has been sitting for a little under 2 years and currently doesn't start. I was told that it likely needs a new fuel pump and may need new injectors. I plan on flushing the fluids and trying to run some new gas through the tank and lines bu...

    I bought a 420d Gran Coupe in mid-March. In the first couple of weeks there were intermittent problems starting up after a short journey break. With my foot on the brake (auto box) and pressing the Start button, the dash lights came on but the engine didn't fire up. There was no cranking sound...
  4. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I'm currently having trouble starting my BMW Z3 - 1.9l - 1997 - 89,996 miles. The car starts and cranks and begins to run but then almost immediately (1/2 seconds later) cuts out. The car has recently (3000 miles ago) had a replacement head gasket fitted by a BMW specialist garage; whilst having...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Time to sell or use the car. It was running when parked 2 years ago. It turns over with jumper cables. Fires up with ether spray, but dies quickly. Give it any throttle and it dies. Added 5 gal of fresh fuel on top of 1 gal old fuel. Changed a burned fuse in #70. Any guess at next steps?
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Had a 2008 328i. Just bought a 2011 335D with 62,xxx on it. Like an idiot, let my fuel get critically low, topped it off (with vehicle running, dont hate me), drove for about 20mi. Shut down the car, came out about two hours later, hit the start button, and she cranked for about 15 seconds...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So its been 10 months since I've gotten my BMW. I bought it in the low 90,000KM range which works about to 56,000 miles. For the last few months I've been noticing the car is not starting as strong but not weak either. Just not that strong start the engine used to have. Its at the point now...

  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys, so I've been having starting problems for a while now. When the engine is cold it takes a couple of goes to start and recently it's been getting worse. So I did some research and ordered a new CPS. I installed it and took her for a drive, gave it a bit of boot in 3rd and then I had no...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I am brand new to the forum and brand new to BMWs. I've had great luck in the past on Jeep forums & you folks seem to be maybe even more dedicated. So, we bout a very used 323i yesterday. It drove great during the test drive & we bought it at KBB value. We drove it home - about 25 minutes -...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Im out of ideas..... The problem arose when i went to work for 7 hours and I left the phone charger plugged in the cigarette lighter and the car would not start when i got off shift to go home. I thought it was that i killed the battery and today I went to go get the battery charged, which...
  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi, I'm new to the forum so please excuse anything I do wroung. I recently just got a 1984 BMW 318i and after charging the battery, it worked--for a while. I couldn't go above 1st gear until I found that the gas pedal cable was loose. I fixed that and it revs high. The owner before said that it...
  14. E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    Hi, Does anyone know if the E61 M5 has such a thing as an 'Integrated Supply Module' or what the equivalent part would be called? The reason I ask is that I have a starting problem with the M5 and I have read on other posts for other models, people have had exactly the same symptoms as mine...
  15. E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    Hi all, I am the owner of a 2008 E61 M5 Touring. I was wondering if anyone might have any idea what could be causing the following problem. Basically if I leave the car unused for one day or more, when I go to start it, 9 times out of 10 all that happens is the instrument panel lights up and the...
  16. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I just bought an e36 m3 two weeks back. Yesterday while on the highway, i downshifted from 5th to 4th going about 50mph, pushing the rpms to ~5500. At that moment i quietly blew black smoke, and lost throttle response. I drove a mile and then the oil light and battery light came on. I drove...
  17. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello everyone, this is my first posting as is probably not uncommon, I have a problem. I have a 2004, 154,000 miles. This is a strange problem, because it seemed that more than one system failed it once, or at least very close in time. I was several hundred miles away from home (doesn't it...
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 98 323i that has had some odd electrical issues. I have had it for about a year an a half and recently it has become hard to start, but only after driving it for the first time int he day. For example, it will always start right up in the morning, but if I drive to the store or...
